now that is interesting:
actually i am pretty glad, that those verbose-libraries (like fann, or 
all avifile, or...) don't spill my pd-console any more. (but i would 
prefer those libraries to be silent anyhow and just return errorcodes 
that explain what is going on)

i still think the solution will be to have 2 pd-versions on windows, one 
that detaches itself from the console and one that does not.

but these are just my personal preferences
